Late Application Period

We have included some frequently asked questions about the late application period. Apply Now!

What is the Late Application? The Late Application is a RSCO Application that is available after the on-time application closes.

When is the Late Application Period?
The Late Application period begins on April 5, 2021 and ends on August 15, 2021 for CTECS (A.I. Prince Tech, E.C. Goodwin Tech, and Howell Cheney Tech), Magnet Schools and Open Choice.

What is the different between an “on-time” and “late application”? The on-time application was from December 1, 2020 to March 19, 2021. During the late application period, not all of the same grade levels and/or school/programs are available. Late applicants are placed based on seat availability.

What grade, schools, and/or programs are available during the Late Application Period?  These may change throughout the late application period.

Can a family submit both an on-time application and a late application for the same child to increase their chances of getting a placement offer? No. The late application is available to applicants who did not submit an application by March 19, 2021. Applicants who submitted an application during the on- time period may not submit a late application.

Can a family submit multiple applications for one student? No, a family cannot submit more than one application for the same student. If there are more than one applications for the same student, RSCO uses the first application and deletes the later applications, including any late applications. If you would like to make changes to the parent/guardian information on your application, please contact RSCO.

What are my chances of receiving a placement offer if I submit a late application? We encourage families to apply during the late application period because, as in previous years, we will send placement offers to families with late applications as seats become available.  

How do I receive a placement offer? RSCO uses email and/or text message to send communications to notify families of placement offers. Families are encouraged to regularly monitor the email address you used to set up your application; log into your application and look at your Dashboard for new documents or updates; and/or view the Announcements page of this website for updates.

I started an on-line application, but did not submit it on time. Do I need to start a new one? No, you do not need to create a new application. Log into the application that you started, complete the required information, then submit your application.
